Overall Experience: As a whole, I have had an extremely positive experience with professors and courses on campus. As a talker and alum of a small private school, I enjoy and feel more engaged in small class settings. While many general-education classes have huge class sizes, as an English major, I get the benefit of being in classes of twenty students of less, which is ideal when having to study, analyze, write about text. This gives me the opportunity to discuss material with classmates with ease. The professors are also much more approachable when you don't have to compete with 500 other students.

Health & Safety: Personally, I feel very safe on campus. We do have a running debate about the ethics of campus-carry, yet even as a liberal, I do not fear the issue. I feel that our school currently does not have the best reputation of being a safe campus, due to the recent murder of our fellow Longhorn, Haruka Weiser. However, the university has taken several measure to ensure more safety on campus as a result of this tragedy. We now have safe-rides around campus provided but faculty and campus police, as well as text message and email updates about any crimes or suspicious activity near or on campus.

Campus Housing: This past year, I lived on campus. The lack of a personal bathroom, kitchen, and elevator made it a bit of a drag to live on campus, specifically in Moore Hill, but I have to say I was one of the lucky ones. Living in a small dorm, although I got my last choice, compared to living in a very populated dorm such as Jester and San Jacinto, gave me a bit of the quieter living experience that I craved, plus having a pool view was a plus. My roommate and I never had to deal with roaches, in which most other dorms had, living right next to the gym was convenient and being near my classes was also nice. Although I am looking forward to having my own room and bathroom off-campus next year, I will say that living in Moore Hill was probably turned out to be the best option for on-campus housing.

Greek Life: The Greek life at UT is pretty surrounding. West Campus, the most desirable, closest living area off-camps is generally very loud due to the rowdiness of Greek life during the week, which can be an inconvenience for students trying to study or sleep. As a southern school, Greek life is a big deal, being difficult to get into, expensive, and prestigious; however, UT is also big and is located in such a fun city, being non-Greek is more common and just as exciting as being in Greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: With a school as big as UT, we have a huge fan base. On football Saturdays, the whole city turns into a giant tailgate. Our Swimming and Diving team won their championships, and Women's Volleyball did just as awesome. There is no shortage of team support and spirit; however, I will say that I am disappointed by the distribution of funds in the athletics department. Football is main focus for athletic donations and funding, when they are not delivering on their performance that other sports are who are not receiving the financial backing that the football team is.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: College doesn't get much better when you're living in one of the coolest cities in America. School spirit, countless student organizations, and numerous places to explore make finding your niche anything but impossible.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Many people partake, but no peer pressure

Overall Experience: Jasper is incredibly, perhaps uniquely competitive, and the sheer motivation of many of its students has inspired me to work harder and raise my own bar.

Health & Safety: They truly stress about protection of the people and their own bodies.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Atmosphere to the ever changing availableness is astounding.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Once a Geek, always a Geek.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The school is very supportive of the athletics that it hosts. Fan support is greater that the rest of the clubs.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: While the overall experience is enjoyable from my view with the people meet and things to do, there are those in the machine that can ruin the experience at times.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most professors at my school are intelligent and well experienced in their studies. However there are a few professors that generally do not care about the topic they teach nor the students in their classroom.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from this is school is well valued due to the rigorous years spent studying for this prestigious school. Job and internships are easy to find depending on the experiences and GPA that one has obtained. Thus, making this school extremely competitive among peers.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I personally feel safe around campus even during the early morning, or late evening hours. Although recently we had a murder of a student on campus. That caused the school to increase security, cops, lights, etc.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus has its advantages and disadvantages. The dorms are relatively small and costly compared to the cost of living in apartments. However, by living in the dorms you have easier access to food, amenities, class, and creating a positive social atmosphere.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is considerably big in the student community. Majority of off campus housing are surrounded by fraternities or sororities. Thus, creating an atmosphere of a party school to those that are visiting the campus. To non-Greeks, Greek is seen as an opportunity to party and relax, however, they are also seen as a disruption and obnoxious.

Most students agree that they have loved their time here at UT, and they wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. College is the best time of your life, and I can’t think of a better place to spend it than at the University of Texas. Students get a great education while having an awesome college town with everything at their disposal. Don’t try to graduate early. Enjoy your time at UT—go cheer on the Longhorns at all the home games for all sports: football, basketball, baseball, intramurals. See the amenities that the Forty Acres has to offer—the Harry Ransom Center, go to our libraries and see our more than eight million volumes. Go to Gregory Gym and the Rec Center—you have a free gym membership for four years or more—use it.

I came to UT convinced that I was going to transfer to a school in California in the spring. I spent two days here before school started and I never wanted to leave, even to go home and visit my parents and high school friends! I couldn’t leave because I was always afraid that I would miss something because there was always something exciting going on. If you are worried about the fact that UT is so big, don’t. All you have to do is find your niche, and everything else should fall into place. You can find it within your dorm, apartment, organization, fraternity, sorority, or classmates. Although, at times, it may seem overwhelming, UT is not nearly as big as it sounds. All you have to do is make friends, which you will, and the campus will seem infinitely smaller. Come join us!
